- 0-8psi: 92-octane pump gasoline, octane booster recommended.

- 9+ psi: Race gasoline for turbo and/or supercharged applications (VP C16, etc…)


Race gas and octane booster are not required when driving the bike at normal speeds and when not applying boost.  As you will learn, a turbo is only in boost when you twist your throttle telling it to do so.  A turbo is not an uncontrollable device, and using common sense and throttle control will regulate how much and when boost is used.

Octane boosters can be deceptive.  Be sure that the booster that you choose to use is acceptable for turbo or supercharged applications as many are not.  In the past, we have used 104 Octane Booster.  There are two versions of this product available; a red bottle that is intended for light duty street engines, and black bottle that is usable for turbocharged applications.

The KZ Turbo System is the corner stone of our turbo system line up. The first turbo system that was produced at Mr Turbo to start the company rolling in 1980, is still available today.Except for carburation and wastegate changes over the years, it's still the same system that set dozens of records, and won multiple drag racing championships for team Mr Turbo, MTC Engineering, and Parson and Kizer back in the early 80's.

These great shots you see here are by 2 Wheel Tuner Magazine of two very nice throw down customs built by Steve Smithers of Smithers' Customs. So, the old KZ still lives especially in the hands of crafty builders like Steve.
